Club moungalaulau

Tonga Islands

L: 124 cm 

Wood

 

Well-known for the luxuriant engravings covering their entire surface, this type of war clubs takes their name -moungalaulau - from their diamond-shaped end, looking like a crocodile’s muzzle. Alternating several sections adorned with chevrons and checkerboard patterns, the decoration is punctuated with little human and animal figures, sometimes isolated within friezes. A four-pointed star pattern marks out the edges of the club’s end.
